Golden Features XXIV EP

golden
Released on the 17th of June one of Goldens’ recent masterpieces and highly anticipated release, the XXIV EP, has been completed. Since then Golden Features has launched his XXIV tour across Europe and is now heading to North America to grace his fans with his new music. With the overwhelming support of the EP Golden felt generous enough to give it away as a free download on his soundcloud for seven solid days. If you have not grabbed it by now capitalize on the opportunity! This is a must have.

The four track project is complete with smooth synths and dark hypnotizing bass lines that every fan of Golden Features should be familiar with by now since his debut self titled EP.  To start it off Baxter, which was streamed on soundcloud for the public prior to the release date as a teaser, is a glorious reawakening to Goldens vision of musc. With a long dark intro with vocals to put you into anticipated euphoria and its eventual lead into dark metallic basslines, it prepares you for the series of tracks starting with No One with vocals by Thelma Plum. A little more energy with catchy vocals and deeper bass lines, No One with echo in your head for days. Then you have a collaboration with vocalist K.Flay with more uplifting beats and synths under her lyrics and finally Golden settles you back down with Do You? Getting you back into dark basslines and a hypnotizing synth that is just mental. This EP has definitely surpassed its hype and should keep us satisfied until the craving for more new Golden sets in.

Zeds Dead Collab Madness

zedsdimension

DC & Hooks back in the scene releasing a monstrosity among the public on a collaboration with LOUDPVCK. Not realizing till their actual work came out, these guys are perfect collab to make a killer track. Both understand what it takes to make a ringing and memorable trap house track to make a dance floor hit. With Zeds Dead history in dubs, they add their style with the trap masters and produce an epic.

And with Zeds Dead collaboration with Megalodon earlier this month, it is a great time to be a dubstep fan. Basically two known heavy hitters of dubstep collaborate and you get what you would expect. Some heavy bass hitting madness. With some Rasta beats and dub wobbles and growls you get a downpour of bass and grime from the double duos. DC & Hooks have been dropping these tracks at their recent sets and you already know, their music is super intoxicating. Keep up with these cats.

Taiki Nulight

taiki nulight

Taiki Nulight, a stone cold player of the night bass community otherwise known as Erka Chinbayer, is on a streak releasing a slew of originals, remixes and collaborations. This bloke from London seems to always be busy releasing music. In fact he has new releases and mixes every month almost so you do not have to wait long to get some jackin music out of him. Some got to wonder where all this creativity is coming from. Taiki must have music flowing through his veins.

Taiki’s most recent work comes out of Dim Mak Records. His first original work on this label as well, is a real dark track. Just like its name Into The Darkness, this track contains dark grooves and deep basslines with echoing vocals. A pretty chill bass track but will keep you in a good vibe on the dance floor. Taiki has some more energetic tracks up his sleeve though.


Aside from his original releases Taiki has been making some top of the line garage house tracks with some top of the line artists. Making some excellent connections through his talented productions, Taiki has had the opportunity to meet up and collab with artists like My Nu Leng and Night Bass master AC Slater. All together the artists have been able to produce some of the best four to the floor deep garage house sounds. Not even to the fullest extent of Taiki’s talents.

Not only working on collaborations and originals from scratch Taiki has been able to rework some other artists, not only his own, sounds. Focusing his creative prowess towards Jamie George and Cause and Affects track Another Time, Taiki gives it some new life. From a light deep house track, Erka adds some echoing basslines and chopped of vocals from the original to give the dancefloor some great garage house vibes to dance too.
